Pinwheels for Prevention

Bright, shiny pinwheels reflecting in the sun filled part of the quad in front of Ferrante and Mawhinney Halls. The pinwheels were placed there by children who attend OCC’s Children’s Learning Center as part of “Pinwheels for Prevention.” The event was held Monday, April 13 in conjunction with Syracuse’s McMahon/Ryan Child Advocacy Center. The goal of the Pinwheels for Prevention campaign is to raise awareness about child abuse and neglect, as well as to increase the community’s ability to protect children through child abuse prevention and education. Students enrolled in the College’s Criminal Justice major also participated in the event, helping children place pinwheels in the ground.
